A VIOLENT brawl ended in bloodshed as a man was bottled in the head and left for dead in the street with what were thought to be life-threatening injuries.

The man, in his 20's, was injured in a fight outside the Barking Tap pub, known as the Buzz Bar, in the early hours of Saturday morning.

He was attacked in Linton Road but made his way up East Street to Station Parade where he collapsed and an ambulance was called.

Police originally thought his head wounds were life threatening but the victim has now been released from hospital.

Trouble began when a fight broke out at around 1am near the Barking Arms in Station Parade; it is believed both brawls may have involved the same people.

Anyone who witnessed the fight should call Detective Sergeant Chris Thorn on 020 8217 5535 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
